Linder, Johnson Named Preseason All-ACC


Posted Jul 27, 2013


Senior offensive lineman Brandon Linder and sophomore running back Duke Johnson were voted as Preseason All-ACC selections.

The ACC Media made their preseason picks and two Hurricanes made the preseason all-Conference team.

Linder, a former five-star recruit, has been a starter since his freshman year. He's expected to be one of the top interior linemen in the league. Johnson, another former five-star recruit, set a UM freshman rushing record last season. He's expected to be among the league's top playmakers this fall.
